Flat Iron Building


The Flatiron Building Heritage Center is an historical museum located along Market Street, in the heart of Brownsville Pennsylvania. Built in the 1830's, the Flatiron Building is named for its unique rounded front giving the appearance of an oldfashioned clothing iron.

In May of 1997 the first floor of the building opened as a museum. The heritage center commemorates the history of Brownsville's two epochs: westward migration, and the industrial era of coal and coke. Among the many exhibits -in the museum you will find a replica of one of the steamboats which once cruised along the Monongahela River, actual tools used in local coal mines, and a sculpture of a coal miner by local artist Frank L. Melega.

The heritage center is free to the public, donations are welcome.
